Make pizza without dough

I don’t really know why I’m hogging all my fashion posts, just don’t feel like posting them right now. Last week I was running back and forth between my desk and my kitchen. I was debating whether or not to just call for pizza- ugh- pizza…again? I’d sit in front of my computer for 5 minutes looking up “vintage luichiny platforms” on google (if they’re not luichiny from the 90′s they’re no good), and then I’d scurry back into the kitchen to see if I could wing a meal with the ingredients I had on hand. I’d be going back and forth about 10 times before I could even make a decision. This drives me nuts. Too lazy to cook, too tired of delivery..

Just as I was reluctantly about to call for pizza (dominos thin crust …shriek……too..much..salt), I saw all these potatoes lying around and suddenly I had an idea to make a potato pizza…I love pizza but I was also getting tired of it. I needed a simple twist. This is a great solution if you want something quick and tasty but also elegant enough to serve at a dinner party.

Here is a shot of all the toppings I’m going to use for each of the pizzas.

For the crust, I placed a potato through a cutter, the result is a fine angel-hair like texture. This is the potato slicer I’m using. (click)

Place the potatoes on a hot pan with oil:

The potato crust should be very crispy and golden brown:

Following the same exact concept/process displayed above, I also set up 3 other toppings for smaller pizzas: mushroom ham and swiss, shrimp scampi, and bleu cheese pear and arugula. The idea and cooking method is simple and you can devise your own topping combinations.
